Ablative Anti-fouling Bottom Paint
Frequently Asked Questions!
Q; Describe Super Shipbottom
A; Super Shipbottom is a Hard Ablative Copolymer
Multi-Season Antifouling Bottom Paint with
nearly 2/3 of the dried surface
always very pure Cuprous Oxide i.e.. Copper! In plain English it
means that the
paint wears away very slowly, will not die when stored out of the water for up
3 years and won't build up and have to be removed.
Q; Is Super Shipbottom compatible with other paint?
A; Super Shipbottom can be applied over other paint
and other paints can go over Super Shipbottom
because we make it boater friendly
by using a completely different solvent than anyone else. In fact
you don't even
have to sand old paint unless it is shiny the way vinyl looks! Not to say you
but a cleaner bottom is always best.
Q; How long will Super Shipbottom last when left in
A; A typical one coat application with one complete coat and a second on the
waterline will last 12
to 15 months in almost 99% of areas. A 2 coat application
should last twice as long and most area
will exceed these estimates but there
are always exceptions.
Q; What is the coverage?
A; Coverage depends on the condition of the bottom. A rough surface will take
more paint than
a smooth surface. Under ideal conditions.
Q; Can Super Shipbottom go over soft ablative
A; If the boat has been aggressively pressure
washed Super Shipbottom can be applied over the
rest of the paint because we
have a chemical etcher that controls the surface.
